Tyre Plugs or Patches?

Plugging a tyre

Debate rages about the most suitable method to repair your tyre after it has been punctured. The answer lies simply in the extent of the damage. Plug repairs are quick and easy – they’re also the cheapest option when it comes to fixing a tyre. Popping in a plug with a tyre plug tool takes only a few minutes and can often be carried out at the side of the road without taking the wheel off. Tyre Plugs have improved over the years and now vulcanise to the existing tyre but they’re not suitable for all punctures and sometimes only provide a temporary repair.

Patching a tyre

Patches are generally considered to be the most effective method of repairing punctured tyres. A patch repair requires the tyre to be demounted from the rim and it is then visually inspected to ensure it is safe to go back into service. A reinforced repair patch is then bonded into place and done correctly will last for the life of the tyre.
